Reishi mushroom has a history of use as an immune tonic, and is also capable of modifying immunity in a direction that is helpful to those suffering from certain allergy related conditions.
In essence those suffering from hayfever may view reishi as a natural antihistamine like solution, however it works at a deeper level by modifying immunity, producing a greater tolerance to allergens.
So in the case of hayfever it will hopefully tone down responsiveness to pollens.
In terms of a good quality reishi product, MRL mushrooms are the best brand that I have come across, and I have been recommending and getting good results with these for many years (I have no affiliation with this company). Product link: Mycology Research Laboratories
Reishi like many other therapeutic mushrooms appears to work even better when combined with probiotics (friendly bacteria supplements). This is largely because probiotics also help to re-balance immunity in a manner that tones down allergy in the body. Always choose a good quality probiotic product that contains research proven strains of bacteria.
